i visited le royal lodge in january 2012 with a friend who lives in dakar. our cottage was enormous and elegant. there were few other visitors at the time so it was very peaceful and quiet. we alternated between laying on the beach and laying by the pool. somehow our room always managed to be magically cleaned and turned down...

We enjoyed four nights in a lovely suite at Le Royal Lodge. The suite was large, well cared for and very comfortable. Hotel restaurant is excellent. Good pool and beach.

le royal lodge is a lovely hotel, with superb accomodation, especially the beach facing rooms,where the views of the beach, sea and sunsets are awesome. I had read many reviews prior to going, so had a good idea of what to expect,but now have my own opinions! The hotel is very isolated, literelly nothing near by, no bars,shops, restuarants, not...

really loved the hotel..fabulous enormous rooms and gorgeous grounds. Opted for a garden room as we enjoy gardens and birds etc... if I went again I would go for a garden room again. We were late getting to Dakar because of the snow at Brussells (from manchester via brussells...really good flights and lots of legroom...and 46 kilos plus 20 kilos... More

Just returned from a week at The Royal Lodge and only have good / great things to say about the place. The transfer from Dakar takes three and half to four hours with the last hour on a dirt road - the transfer from the airport was in a Ford Transit which is not a particularly good off-road vehicle! whereas...

Royal Lodge is an unique place for a totally relaxing winter break. It is 3 to 4 hours from Dakar by car (including one hour on dust roads). Bungalows - I strongly advise to opt for a seaview - are large, finely and soberly decorated; they offer all comfort, including airco, separate sitting room, ample space to put your clothes,... More

Gorgeous, tranquil, luxurious (without being pretentious) and so relaxing! Such a beautiful location. The villas are huge - we had one of the sea view ones but I think they're all about the same size. Bedroom, with adjoining lounge area, big bathroom with tiled, stand-up shower area, massive jacuzzi looking out over the beach (probably best to keep the blinds... More

Le Royal Lodge is not like the real world. You are pampered from arrival by a superb team. Even the gardeners greet you in a freindly fashion. I learnt from Phillipe, the owner, that he employs 76 people but you would never know it. The room was cleaned then later made up for the night without us ever being aware... More

feb 22 We spent 5 perfect nights at the Royal Lodge. We chose the `hut` with its own swimming pool. This worked well as there were quite a few children using the other pool. We also swam in the sea. The accommodation was spacious with seating area TV well stocked fridge ,tea/coffee and a large jaccuzi bath, seperate toilet. All... More
